File Name: what is shear wall why and where it is provided .zip
Reinforced concrete shear walls are one of the most widely used lateral load structural resisting elements in high rise buildings. Introducing openings in existing shear walls may be due to remodeling or municipality considerations, such as placement of staircases, windows, doors and elevators. Making openings in existing shear wall decrease the overall structural capacity and integrity of the wall, in addition to stress concentrations around the openings. This necessitates the strengthening of the opening rim with FRP wraps. The proposed FE model has been validated using previous experimental data in literature.
Shear walls are constructed to counter the effects of lateral load acting on a structure. In residential construction, shear walls are straight external walls that typically form a box which provides all of the lateral support for the building.
When shear walls are designed and constructed properly, and they will have the strength and stiffness to resist the horizontal forces. In building construction, a rigid vertical diaphragm capable of transferring lateral forces from exterior walls, floors, and roofs to the ground foundation in a direction parallel to their planes. Examples are the reinforced-concrete wall or vertical truss. Lateral forces caused by wind, earthquake, and uneven settlement loads, in addition to the weight of structure and occupants; create powerful twisting torsion forces.
These forces can literally tear shear a building apart. Reinforcing a frame by attaching or placing a rigid wall inside it maintains the shape of the frame and prevents rotation at the joints.
Shear walls are especially important in high-rise buildings subjected to lateral wind and seismic forces. In the last two decades, shear walls became an important part of mid and high-rise residential buildings. As part of an earthquake resistant building design, these walls are placed in building plans reducing lateral displacements under earthquake loads. So shear-wall frame structures are obtained. Shear wall buildings are usually regular in plan and in elevation.
However, in some buildings, lower floors are used for commercial purposes and the buildings are characterized with larger plan dimensions at those floors. In other cases, there are setbacks at higher floor levels. Shear wall buildings are commonly used for residential purposes and can house from to inhabitants per building Scope of the workThe aim of the shear wall is to investigate the different ways in which the tall structures can be stabilized against the effects of strong horizontal wind loading and seismic loading.
Some other reasons why we use shear walls are tall structures can be constructed which reduces the area used and we can accommodate a large population in that particular area. Other objective is to construct a cost effective structure in less period of time.
This study helps in the investigation of strength and ductility of walls. The scope is to analyze the constructed shear wall that is to be constructed. Firstly the model is implemented into known computer software and then it is analyzed based on the investigation of strength and ductility.
The strength of shear walls tested are compared with the calculated strengths based on design codes. Shear wall structural systems are more stable. Because, their supporting area total crosssectional area of all shear walls with reference to total plans area of building, is comparatively more, unlike in the case of RCC framed structures.
Walls have to resist the uplift forces caused by the pull of the wind. Walls have to resist the shear forces that try to push the walls over. Walls have to resist the lateral force of the wind that tries to push the walls in and pull them away from the building. Shear walls are quick in construction, and in a country like India where shelter is very important in a short lapse of time shear walls can be built very quickly.
The precision to which they are built is also very high compared to normally built brick structures. Hence the key objective of shear wall is to build a safe, tall, aesthetic building.

They have been very patient, co operativethrough out our main project. The information given by them is immense and very useful in completion of our project Chapter 2 Literature Review Review of literature:Development of shear wall system for construction has advanced dramatically over the past few years. Shear wall systems were initially developed to reduce damage due to earth quakes labour requirements, increase strength of the building, shorten construction time reduce cost increase quality of life.
Varyani described about shear walled buildings under horizontal loads. Considering in his design "Reinforced concrete framed buildings are adequate for resisting both the vertical and the horizontal loads acting on shear walls of a building".
In his 2 nd edition of "Design of structures". He gave rigidity of shear wall, torsional rigidity and shear center of a building in a detailed description. Duggal on his profound interest on structures gave a detailed description about reinforced concrete buildings in his book " Earth quake resistant design of structures "describing a wall in a building which resist lateral loads originating from wind or earthquakes are known as shear walls".
He considered flexural strength in the wall to be dominant force based on which design of structure to be carried out in tall shear walls. He described in detail about various types of shear walls with their load bearing capacities as per code requirements. Jadhav Associate Professor Rajarambapu Institute of technology rajaramnagar, Islampur has given a detailed report on the form work used for the construction of shear walls.
Jadhav highlighted the importance of quickness in construction and the need for earthquake resistant building for better sustainability of life.
A report on effects of openings in shear walls on seismic response of structure by sharminrizachowdhary, department of civil engineering dhake, Bangladesh mostly focused on the design of shear walls with openings on seismic response using E-Tabs,i. S As per clause 32, design for wall describes, design of horizontal shear in clause In IS: it gives the ductile detailing of shear wall as per clause 9, where 9.
Ductile detailing, as per the code IS: is considered very important as the ductile detailing gives the amount of reinforcement required and the alignment of bars. Chapter 3 Shear WallsShear walls are vertical elements of the horizontal force resisting system.
Shear walls are quick in construction, as the method adopted to construct is concreting the members using formwork. Shear walls doesn't need any extra plastering or finishing as the wall itself gives such a high level of precision, that it doesn't require plastering. Due to different kinds of stresses such as shear, tension, torsion, etc.
The RCC framed structures are slender, when compared to shear wall concept of box like threedimensional structures. Though it is possible to design the earthquake resistant RCC frame, it requires extraordinary skills at design, detailing and construction levels, which cannot be anticipated in all types of construction projects. On the other hand even moderately designed shear wall structures not only more stable, but also comparatively quite ductile.
In safety terms it means that, during very severe earthquakes they will not suddenly collapse causing death of people. They give enough indicative warnings such as widening structural cracks, yielding rods, etc.
For structural purposes we consider the exterior walls as the shear-resisting walls. Forces from the ceiling and roof diaphragms make their way to the outside along assumed paths, enter the walls, and exit at the foundation. Shear forces are generated in stationary buildings by accelerations resulting from ground movement and by external forces like wind and waves.
This action creates shear forces throughout the height of the wall between the top and bottom shear wall connections.
Uplift forces exist on shear walls because the horizontal forces are applied to the top of the wall. These uplift forces try to lift up one end of the wall and push the other end down.
In some cases, the uplift force is large enough to tip the wall over. Uplift forces are greater on tall short walls and less on low long walls. Bearing walls have less uplift than non-bearing walls because gravity loads on shear walls help them resist uplift. Shear walls need hold down devices at each end when the gravity loads cannot resist all of the uplift.
The hold down device then provides the necessary uplift resistance. Shear walls should be located on each level of the structure including the crawl space. To form an effective box structure, equal length shear walls should be placed symmetrically on all four exterior walls of the building.
Shear walls should be added to the building interior when the exterior walls cannot provide sufficient strength and stiffness. Shear walls are most efficient when they are aligned vertically and are supported on foundation walls or footings. When exterior shear walls do not provide sufficient strength, other parts of the building will need additional strengthening.
Consider the common case of an interior wall supported by a sub floor over a crawl space and there is no continuous footing beneath the wall. For this wall to be used as shear wall, the sub floor and its connections will have to be strengthened near the wall. For Retrofit work, existing floor construction is not easily changed. That's the reason why most retrofit work uses walls with continuous footings underneath them as shear walls.
Wall thickness varies from mm to mm, depending on the number of stories, building age, and thermal insulation requirements. In general, these walls are continuous throughout the building height; however, some walls are discontinued at the street front or basement level to allow for commercial or parking spaces. Usually the wall layout is symmetrical with respect to at least one axis of symmetry in the plan. Floor slabs are either cast-in-situ flat slabs or less often, precast hollow-core slabs.
Buildings are supported by concrete strip or mat foundations; the latter type is common for buildings with basements. Structural modifications are not very common in this type of construction. Reinforcement requirements are based on building code requirements specific for each country. In general, the wall reinforcement consists of two layers of distributed reinforcement horizontal and vertical throughout the wall length.

In structural engineering , a shear wall is a vertical element of a seismic force resisting system that is designed to resist in- plane lateral forces, typically wind and seismic loads. In many jurisdictions, the International Building Code and International Residential Code govern the design of shear walls. A shear wall resists loads parallel to the plane of the wall. Collectors, also known as drag members, transfer the diaphragm shear to shear walls and other vertical elements of the seismic force resisting system. Shear walls are typically light-framed or braced wooden walls with shear panels, reinforced concrete walls, reinforced masonry walls, or steel plates. Plywood is the conventional material used in wood timber shear walls, but with advances in technology and modern building methods, other prefabricated options have made it possible to inject shear assemblies into narrow walls that fall at either side of an opening. Sheet steel and steel-backed shear panels in the place of structural plywood in shear walls has proved to provide stronger seismic resistance.
This is just one of the solutions for you to be successful. ACI The purpose of these tests was to systematically investigate the influence of various factors on behaviour of the wall in terms of strength, stiffness, deformation capacity, and energy dissipation. These two facts lead us to a revolutionary new concept of designing a shear wall. Check punching shear and edge distance. Significant Changes to IBC.
